Starbucks Ditches Jewish Group From Anti-Bias Training Over Non-Support of BLM

Published

on

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL for short), a group dedicated to combatting anti-semitism in the United States has been dropped from an anti-bias training session put on by Starbucks.

The session was due to be put on next month, but the coffee giant faced severe backlash from activists for having ADL as part of the activity, so they’ve opted to boot them from playing a role in developing the training that will be held on May 29.

The reason why?

They don’t support the anti-Semitism coming out of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Here’s more from The Hill:

Starbucks committed to closing most of its stores for an anti-bias training day after a viral video showed two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting for a friend without purchasing anything. The ADL was originally part of the company’s team developing the curriculum for the training.

Activists criticized Starbucks for involving the ADL over the organization’s support for Israel and failure to endorse the Black Lives Matter movement. The group announced in 2016 that it would not fully endorse the movement over some leaders’ “anti-Israel — and at times anti-Semitic — positions.”

Tamika Mallory, an organizer of the Women’s March, posted on Twitter that the ADL is “constantly attacking black and brown people,” and criticized Starbucks as “tone deaf” for involving the group.

Black Lives Matter D.C. accused the ADL of being “ultra pro-cop.”

Starbucks said in an April 24 press release that the ADL would be consulted on “longer-term changes,” but did not name the group or its leaders in the section on the May 29 training.

Riley, the spokeswoman for Starbucks, has denied booting ADL over the pressure the company has received.

So fighting racism and bigotry is only acceptable, praiseworthy, and celebrated so long as the objects of said fight aren’t Jewish? That’s more or less the message being sent by Starbucks’ decision to remove the ADL from the training session.

This may not have been what they intended, but it’s certainly the way it looks.

Not reaching out to this group appears to be a glaring inconsistency in the company’s race policies, but then again, inconsistency is really the only thing consistent about liberalism.

Lindsey Graham Sends Cryptic Tweet to Comey as GOP Prepares Rebuttal

The media, along with the democrats, have been bludgeoning the nation with the “collusion” narrative…but what comes around, goes around.

James Comey

With the Mueller report finished, our nation will soon find herself in the next phase of the “Russiagate” scandal:  Redemption. For nearly two years we have been held hostage not only by the dark cloud of the Mueller investigation itself, but also by the democrats and the mainstream media who have been smothering us with the idea that the President of The United States is some sort of Russian spy. As far as cultural conditioning goes, this won’t be an easy reputation to repudiate, thanks to the endless chyrons and sobbing pundits of the corporately-controlled “infotainment” industry. But, in the halls of Washington DC, the rebuking comes hard and fast. In the case of James Comey, the disgraced former head of the FBI who was intrinsic to the origins of the Mueller investigation, a purposefully vague yet perfectly staged photograph of him staring into some forlorn-looking forest was meant to be his way of subtly discrediting Mueller. https://twitter.com/Comey/status/1109930531389472768 Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had the perfect response: https://twitter.com/LindseyGrahamSC/status/1109984734212513793 Graham is almost certainly referencing the likely possibility in which Comey and other who were integral to this probe getting off the ground could be brought in front of Congress to testify regarding their decisions.

Mad Max Throws Predictable Tantrum Over RussiaGate Nothing Burger

Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments.

Maxine Waters

For nearly two years the nation has waited, and, during that wait, we have been fairly nasty to one another. You see, the democrats decided to go all in on a conspiracy theory first mentioned by failed 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton in which Donald Trump was some sort of “Russia asset”, sent to the White House on orders of Vladimir Putin. We know the rest of the long story:  Robert Mueller spend the next 22 months looking far and wide for proof of this collusion and came up essentially empty.  (And that was after investigating a number of bizarre, out-of-the-Russian-realm leads as well). To say that Mueller was thorough would be a gross understatement. Now, with the democrats overtly disappointed in the summary statement produced by the Attorney General regarding the Mueller Report, they’ve again begun to radicalize en masse. Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments…and they are predictably batty.  “This is not the end of anything!” Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid as they realized the report was a giant nothing burger for Democrats. “This is the— well, it’s the end of the report and the investigation by Mueller. But those of us who chair these committees have a responsibility to continue with our oversight,” Waters said. “There’s so much that, uh, needs to be, you know, taken a look at at this point,” she claimed,” and so it’s not the end of everything.” Waters joins fellow democratic Congressperson Adam Schiff in continuing to assert that there is still evidence of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite Robert Mueller specifically stating that this was not the case after 22 months of investigation.
